Video – Adjustment Brush Adjustments

This week I started to write my tip in a blog post and quickly realized it was going to take me a while to explain it the right way. With the wonderful world of video being so easy, I figured it would be so much easier to explain the tip if you could watch what I was doing. Hence the Friday video tip today. It deals with a little-known feature of the Adjustment Brush in Lightroom 2. It’s pretty neat so make sure you check it out.

Have a great weekend. All my best to you if you’re celebrating a holiday this time of year. I’ll be celebrating Easter with my kids (and the Easter bunny of course) and we’ll be eating lots of chocolate (I love those dark chocolate peanut M&Ms). Take care folks!

  1. I only have Lightroom and no photoshop. I didn’t know this overall tip, though love the brush feature. Big question: does LR have a heal/blemish removal feature, I can’t find anything like in books or program help. Suggestions? I’ve been doing in Picasa after export which is kind of silly!

  2. Hey Matt,
    Can I make the suggestion again…. Please for my sake. When are you going to make the subtitle as you know I’m a lightroom lover. I dont think its being fair for all the hearing people to hear what you say on the video. It’s time to create the subtitle or if you can send me the link of what you were saying on the video that will make me understand more of what you are showing or saying to other who are able to hear. Not me as I am a hard of hearing like I told you that before. Please help me out if you will follow the ADA LAW. There is no excuse if you or the company cant create the subtitle. It’s very simple and that will help me out more to understand. I betcha there is other people who has hard time to understand what you said on the video or the podtv. Gosh, wish you would help me out and try to understand how I feel by wanting to learn instead of what I cant hear. Being honest with you Matt, I’m addict to the lightroom more often and still wanted to learn a lot of things.
